T-Mobile Expands 5G Home Internet Coverage to 9 Million More Homes

T-Mobile, already the largest 5G home internet provider with a customer base of over 40 million households, revealed in a blog post Tuesday that it has extended its footprint to cover to 9 million homes in 64 cities across Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. 

The expansion could bring reliable broadband service to potentially millions of rural and suburban areas with limited internet options. A third of T-Mobile service areas, including those in the new expansion, are said by T-Mobile to be in “rural America,” places where high-speed internet access does not come cheap, if at all

Mike Katz, Chief Marketing Officer at T-Mobile commented on the expansion, stating T-Mobile is “doubling down on our mission to bring connectivity to more people, expanding Home Internet in states across the Northeast.”

The wireless home internet service, which can deliver speeds ranging from 33 to 182Mbps, starts at a flat rate of $50 per month with autopay ($30 per month for households with a qualifying Magenta MAX plan). That’s not blazing fast by any means, but the price is right and the speeds are faster than many rural internet options, such as satellite or DSL. A T-Mobile spokesperson told CNET that “we expect many of our customers to see speeds above 100Mbps.” The service terms — no contracts, no equipment fees, no data caps — are as amicable as you’ll find from any ISP, rural or otherwise. 

5G home internet is still a relatively new technology, but T-Mobile is already proving to be a contender in the home broadband industry. In its first appearance in the American Customer Satisfaction Index report, T-Mobile ranked second among major internet service providers with a score of 71/100, just a point behind Verizon Fios
